Pizza for the ages.

I can’t tell you enough how great this spontaneously created pizza is.  Katie and I collaborated to make this masterpiece.  Made with whole wheat crust and using lots of veggies with limited amounts of cheese, this is a healthier pizza option.


  • Whole wheat pizza crust dough (we used Trader Joe’s)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, diced
  • 1 bag of spinach (6 oz.)
  • Artichoke hearts (4-6)
  • 2 tomatoes, sliced
  • 1-2 T. fat free ricotta cheese
  • 8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Press out pizza dough to edges of greased pizza pan.
  3. In a sauce pan, combine 3 cloves of garlic, 1/2 onion, and olive oil.
  4. Saute until soft.
  5. Spread over pizza crust.
  6. Sparsely disperse ricotta cheese throughout pizza.
  7. In same sauce pan, add just enough olive oil to thinly coat bottom and add in remaining garlic.  Add in spinach 1/4 bag at a time until the entire bag is cooked down.
  8. Spread mixture over crust.
  9. Lay slices of tomato so that they cover pizza in a single layer.
  10. Add a light covering of mozzarella cheese.
  11. Seperate meat of artichoke from leaves. Scatter leaves over top of pizza
  12. Bake for 10-15 minutes until lightly browned.
  13. Let cool, cut, and share!
